Hello guys! As a lurker that almost never posts I have noticed that many people may have moved to deadhook. That made me think about how many of you only come here and how many visit lots of sites like this. So how many of you only come here and how many come here and to deadhook?

well everybody knows my story. I started at deadhook well over a year ago. and then found my way here. I absolutely love that so many people found deadhook recently. I'm not sure why so many decided to go over and check it out and sign up NOW, when I've been talking about it for over 9 months, but, maybe sometimes doing something new with other friends makes it easier. and that's cool. :) by no means should everyone come over-- it's not for everyone. It's very different than LMA, and honestly, very different from other forums that I have visited... phishhook, willow tree, rukind, dead.net.... thou I have visited those other places and posted on a few of them, deadhook and LMA are more than enough for me. :)



and BTW, look at Dire giving hints and direction for deadhook features! LOL cool! :)

I mostly post at the hook now. Here, though, is usually a better place for "best of" suggestions and things of that nature. I'll continue to stop by, because this is the place for streaming shows, and I still have it as one of my many home pages.

this forum scratches all my dead itches. i like the people here. i don't frequent other message boards simply because i don't have the time nor the energy to go virtual club hopping. i don't grok because my relationship with grateful dead music is my relationship with grateful dead music (meaning - while the music is being played, i get 'it'. i would rather revel in the moment and not dissect it). i think of lma as the vault or holy grail. shit, the band gave archive.org their collective stamp of approval and that's damn well good enough for me. i have no intention of wandering.

everytime I log on I stop here and read at least a few threads.

when I first came here i was using a dinky ibook for the first time after my old 7300powermac blew a fuse, with a wisp of smoke, a loud pop and the smell of melted plastic or something...

Donna regularly chastised my naive notions back then, along with a few members who've since ceased posting on this forum... wtf. wise-up, cream puff!

i was obstreperous, an inflated would-be beat poet or some such, with neanderthal paws pounding away on that tiny non-mouse track board...

some of you were kind to me, when i made the occasional good call, the invisible friendship really helped me grow bit by bit.

the music went through the change that required beginners like myself to keep coming back - couldn't take it to go... in a way that's been a good thing.

even when cruising taper's section, speeding arrow or sugar megs I always check the review and streams here 1st to make sure I want to download...
my life is mainly around the music, sharing and encouraging friends the same way I've been encouraged - and enriched - through this mother load of great stuff.

lol, Cp:vv OX0-1

Ok, guess I'll go against the flow. I'm a long time Deadhooker who has recently gotten more active here on the "llama farm"(ABSOLUTELY NO OFFENSE MEANT). A little contention is not always a bad thing, but when it degenerates into personal attacks it is just hard to handle. I fugure to continue to playing as a member of both the home team and the visitors, but it is getting a little confusing. Just don't tell your fleshy freinds that you paly with Deadhookers and Llamas. That might freak them out;)(Damn emoticons)

I had been an "Archive Only" kind of guy for a couple of years, but recently decided that I may have been limiting myself by not exploring new territory (hell, that's what made the Dead the Dead). After some brief time over "on the other side" I found the folks there are very inviting and also knowledgable, just as most folks here are. I figure the more folks you can meet who share a common love the better. Plus, it can provide a nice sanctuary when things get too heated over here.

DH
SFN
Phook
willow

I also sit in a IRC ("real" chat)channel with a few clowns Ive known since my infancy online @ a server called "americhat" or "vidgamechat"

on a daily basis my "routine" of websites I scrounge around on is

NHL.com
Dime
Traders
etree
shnflac.net
Youkanland
Exigo
bootcity
skyiscrape / red mosquito
albinoblacksheep
runescape
comics.com
ucomics
... my zomb acct got droped from lack of use I guess so probably shouldnt be listed here..

and ive obviously got an acct here .. but yesterday is the first time ive used it in years ... going back to when there was no GD specific forum.. just the one on the main page

I go to a few other places on a regular basis .. but I float through that rotation of sites multiple times every day .. with the exception being the comics sites, when I read the days comics i dont go back..

one thing i can say is .. if your browser is is not "tabed" ..
you need to climb up out of the stone ages and update that shit ..
I finally did a little over 2 weeks ago and Im lovin it

P.S.
ETA ..
yes .. I am a wordy motherfucker sometimes....

Firefox .. and the newer IE have "tabed browsing" rather than opening a whole new instance of the browser when you want to be on 2 or more sites at once..

Here is a pic of my Firefox browser while I am posting here ... and also viewing my List .. and on DH

the newer IE does the same thing

Hmmm, the first three of us are pretty similar...I have been here and only here (no other websites of ANY kind) for about a yr now, and though I joined over at Hook last yr, haven't really been there much until the past few days, largely because so many 'friends' from here are there too, and frankly, I can make fun of them twice as much...And be even more irritatingly redundant with my 68 mantra.

I'm sticking with the archive. Don't think the 'hook is the place for a cynical old curmudgeon like me. Pretty pictures and a warm and fluffy attitude just isn't my thing. I like a bit of grit and crunch now and then.

I'm with you Rob. Pretty much my thoughts exactly.

I used to like to go to DNC, which still is a very fine forum. The only problem I had there was that if you didn't post 24/7 you kind of got left out of discussions. I find it's a lot easier to get to know people here.

I like this place and it doesn't bother me when things get heated. I usually find the things that get people riled up are more often than not boring attempts at attention by a few.

"grit and crunch", huh? I too enjoy the a little abrasiveness once in a while, as long as it doesn't degrade into a name-calling, foul-mouthed donnybrook. When it does enter such pugilistic territory, I do like having the ability to "jump ship" for awhile and know I can engage in civilized exchanges until the storm has subsided here. This will always be my main home, but it is nice to have an option if the wife starts yelling too much.

I'm with you on the dangers of the degraded argument - I fell foul of that one on the occasion of my ill-tempered spat of recent unfortunate memory with cliff. There are times, though, when it's hard not to let fly. I'm all for respecting fellow posters but I think it's something that's earned, not imposed by administrative dictat. Anyway, you've certainly got mine. And it's good to talk to you again - hope all is well and you're enjoying your time at the 'hook and in the real world.

All is indeed well here, as I hope it is with you as well. As for the two locales apparently now engaged in some odd form of competition, I look at it more as two VW Microbuses full of folks heading down the same road to the next show. I see nothing wrong with riding in the other vehicle from time to time, especially when a fist fight breaks out and some neanderthal mouth-breather spills his drink all over me.

I don't mean to bad mouth the other place. I haven't really been there. Just checked it out real quick. Sounds way too nice for my tastes. I guess I never really clicked with the " kind veggie burrito" suburban kid turned hippie crowd.

Going off on a tangent ( as usual )- I NEVER understood, and I still don't, how this whole fake peace and love shit got thrown on the band. First of all I never bought into that whole fashion show - whoever bathes the least and walks the filthy city streets barefoot or whoever knows someone who knows someone is the Deadest of all. I allways thought it was just as shallow as a lot of cliques in High school. Second, the band seemed the exact opposite of everything alot of these lot rats stood for: they smoked, ate MEAT, did hard drugs, were sharp tongued, geez I could go on and on.

To me they were anarchistic and independant allmost right up to the end, or at least to when I stopped seeing them around 91 ( I mean they had barely graduated to ONLY playing large venues and their tickets at that time were still an easy $5 less than any of their contemporaries). I never understood why they didn't ever get respect from independant types - both fans and artists. I mean whether one likes the music or not is personal taste, but the distain that would get heaped on them I allways felt was SO unjust. That's why I am always so glad to hear when they get the respect of independant/punk/etc. artists like Patti Smith and Elvis Costello.

Hopefully I didn't offend anyone with my views on the fake hippie fashion thing but that's my honest take on it.
